District Superintendent

Dale L. Breault Jr. began as district superintendent in January 2020, just in time to guide Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES and its component districts through an unprecedented pandemic. Mr. Breault headed up the Northeastern Regional Information Center for seven years prior, and before that, he gained a decade of administrative experience as chief information officer, principal, and combo business official/superintendent in local schools. Mr. Breault started out his career as a music teacher and still helps direct choral and musical productions at his kids’ school in his free time.

As district superintendent, Mr. Breault not only leads FEH BOCES but also:

  • Acts as a liaison between our component districts and the New York State Education Department, as well as other public and private agencies.  

  • Provides consultations to component districts on a range of educational topics.

  • Assists component districts with superintendent searches.
